Well friends, a few days ago we were notified that a wine writer and reviewer in Memphis, Tennessee – Frederic Koppel of BiggerThanYourHead.net, had a chance to sample our Pinot Noirs from the 2009 & 2010 vintages. Knowing that we have distribution in his city and Memphis has an educated wine population and culture, we were very curious to hear what he had to say. Let me tell you, his review was fantastic!
I’ve attached a link to his post on the wines here, but to give you a brief idea, on the 2009 he says,
“In the mouth, the wine is a finely shaped amalgam of lightly sanded woody spices, dusty graphite, elusive tannins and clean, vibrant acidity, all working in concord with delicately spiced and macerated black and red fruit flavors. The finish is well-knit, sinewy, spicy.”
On the 2010, he notes,
“The ’10 is a bit spicier than the ’09, but it maintains, at all costs, a spirit of spareness and elegance that makes it easy to drink for its winsome fruity qualities yet demanding for its dry, rigorous character.”
As well, Mr. Koeppel rated both wines “excellent!” This is something that we are thrilled to share with each of you and a very happy day for us at Labor Wines as well. Stay tuned for the upcoming Spring release of our 2011 Pinot Noir and a cool surprise on the white wine front as well!
